Want to know the benefits of nail gel manicures? Or whether gel or acrylic is better for you? Keep reading to find out!

Firstly what is builder gel?

Builder gel is what you will use when you want to create length, thickness or add strength to the nail. You can apply builder gel to either natural nails for a non-chip overlay, or use it with extension paper to create extensions or enhancements.

Secondly how long does builder gel last?

A nails art manicured with builder gel can last up to 4 weeks, but this often depends on how well you apply it and which brand you use– plus, how well the old coat is removed. When applied on natural nails, a strong and healthy base is required.

Always make sure you follow your chosen gel brand’s instructions to get the best results. This often means only using products from your chosen gel nail system – not mixing one builder gel with another brand’s top coat, for example. But for AOPMALL Builder Gel, it does not require the whole gel nail system, you can use other brand's base coat and top coat, Anyway we suggest you take AOPMALL builder gel whole nail system together, is it more affordable and cheaper.

You also need to make sure you use the right UV/ LED Nail Lamp for the correct amount of time.

When the builder gel begins to grow out, you can infill just like you would with acrylic, or remove the set and apply another straight away – providing the nail is still in good condition.

Thirdly how to use builder gel?

Generally, the steps you would take to apply a builder gel would be something like this:

1.Prepare the nail – clean, file and buff the nails. Push back and trim the cuticle. Wipe the nail with a lint-free pad using nail cleanser or acetone.
2.Apply base coat –if your builder gel requires you to use one. Cure under your nail lamp if needed. 
3.Apply the builder gel – if you are using a bottled builder gel(means Liquid Builder Gel), you can paint it on. If you have a pot of gel, you will need to use your own nail brush to pick up a small amount. Stay away from the cuticle and be sure to cover the free edge. Builder gel tends to ‘self-level’, so allow it to settle for a few seconds to make sure it is applied evenly.
4.Cure under LED/UV lamp – your chosen builder gel should state what type of lamp it needs to be used with and how long to cure it for.
5.Apply a second coat – if needed, apply your second coat and cure again.
6.Clean the nail – use a lint-free wipe and isopropyl alcohol to remove any tackiness.
7.File the nail – perfect your desired shape and even out any areas that might be too thick.
8.Apply colour or top coat – wipe the nail clean again, and apply your top coat. If you want a different colour, paint on your gel polish and cure again first.
9.Finish– once all your gel is applied and properly cured, your manicure is complete! Add a touch of cuticle oil and let your client know of any aftercare advice before they leave.
